National Trade Unions Federation of Police and Contractual employees of Romania visited colleagues from Republic of Moldova
On October 13-15 National Trade Unions Federation of Police and Contractual employees of Romania in persons of president Mr. Dumitru Coarnă and treasurer of NTUFPCE Mr. Claudiu Staicu visited Trade Unions Federation of Moldova “SINDLEX”.
As a result of multi-year productive collaboration, the parties signed a new collaboration agreement between the Federations for the next 5 years, discussed issues that will underpin cooperation development in several trade unions, member organizations of federations, and had meetings with head staff of NTUCM, GIP, MIA.
Thus, a friendly meeting in the family of trade unions was the meeting with the president of the National Confederation of Trade Unions of Moldova, Mr. Oleg Budza, who highly appreciated the collaboration relations established for several years between the unionists from the force organs of the two countries, which on his opinion, contributes substantially to the improving of the working conditions of employees with special status in the branch. He noted that Federation «SINDLEX» has made great efforts to strengthen social dialogue. As a result, a number of socio-economic benefits have been obtained for employees, trade union members from law enforcement agencies, and the Confederation will continue to support the Federation's efforts in this direction.
The visit to the General Inspectorate of the Police and the meeting with the head staff of the Police in the person of the Deputy Head of GIP Mr. Gheorghe Cavcaliuc and the Head of the Human Resources Department, Mr. Andrei Zagoreanu, focused on the opportunities of trade unions to defend the rights of employees with special status in case of overtime work or work at night and on holidays. The Romanian trade unionists have expressed their views on the necessity of maintaining a clear and credible dialogue between the social partners, which in fact will bring better changes through regulations in the Collective Convention and the Collective Labor Agreement.
The meeting at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and the opening for communication of Mr. Alexandru Jizdan, Minister of the IA, impressed our Romanian colleagues, noting the existence of a classic partnership, based on respect and concrete facts. Transparency, constructive communication and decisions taken to improve working and salaries conditions of civil servants with special status, show that social partnership in the MIA is well established and dynamic.
Mr. Mihail Laşcu, President of the Trade Unions Federation of Moldova "SINDLEX", stressed the importance of working with counterparts from Romania, which contributes to facilitate exchange of experience and the application of good practices, as well as to the consolidation of the international syndicalist movement.
